What does an Operations Manager Leader do?

Operations managers ensure a company or organization’s operations run smoothly and on time. They work with people, core operations, budgets, project delivery, and in company strategy. They are responsible for engaging and developing the members of the teams that they manage. Operations managers are involved in financial procedures, including invoicing. They must manage margins, costs, budgeting, and forecasting at the company.

Operations managers must match individuals to clients’ needs and balance objectives and goals equally from both sides, and they must strive to drive growth strategy and balance global needs. Sometimes they are called upon to support the production planning process or ensure key performance indicators are in place, and production targets are met. Operations managers need a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in business or management or related fields.
